    Detailed geometric models of the real world are in increasing demand. LiDAR data is appropriate to reconstruct urban models. In urban scenes, the individual surfaces can be reconstructed and connected to form the scene ...
  • As-Killing-As-Possible Vector Fields for Planar Deformation 

    Solomon, Justin; Ben-Chen, Mirela; Butscher, Adrian; Guibas, Leonidas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Cartoon animation, image warping, and several other tasks in two-dimensional computer graphics reduce to the formulation of a reasonable model for planar deformation. A deformation is a map from a given shape to a new one, ...
  • On Approximation of the Laplace-Beltrami Operator and the Willmore Energy of Surfaces 

    Hildebrandt, Klaus; Polthier, Konrad (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Discrete Laplace Beltrami operators on polyhedral surfaces play an important role for various applications in geometry processing and related areas like physical simulation or computer graphics. While discretizations of ...
  • A Complex View of Barycentric Mappings 

    Weber, Ofir; Ben-Chen, Mirela; Gotsman, Craig; Hormann, Kai (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Barycentric coordinates are very popular for interpolating data values on polyhedral domains. It has been recently shown that expressing them as complex functions has various advantages when interpolating two-dimensional ...
  • Multiscale Biharmonic Kernels 

    Rustamov, Raif M. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    This paper introduces a general principle for constructing multiscale kernels on surface meshes, and presents a construction of the multiscale pre-biharmonic and multiscale biharmonic kernels. Our construction is based on ...
  • A Condition Number for Non-Rigid Shape Matching 

    Ovsjanikov, Maks; Huang, Qi-Xing; Guibas, Leonidas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Despite the large amount of work devoted in recent years to the problem of non-rigid shape matching, practical methods that can successfully be used for arbitrary pairs of shapes remain elusive. In this paper, we study the ...
  • Large-Scale Integer Linear Programming for Orientation Preserving 3D Shape Matching 

    Windheuser, Thomas; Schlickewei, Ulrich; Schmidt, Frank R.; Cremers, Daniel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    We study an algorithmic framework for computing an elastic orientation-preserving matching of non-rigid 3D shapes. We outline an Integer Linear Programming formulation whose relaxed version can be minimized globally in ...
  • An Optimization Approach to Improving Collections of Shape Maps 

    Nguyen, Andy; Ben-Chen, Mirela; Welnicka, Katarzyna; Ye, Yinyu; Guibas, Leonidas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Finding an informative, structure-preserving map between two shapes has been a long-standing problem in geometry processing, involving a variety of solution approaches and applications. However, in many cases, we are given ...
  • Deformable 3D Shape Registration Based on Local Similarity Transforms 

    Papazov, Chavdar; Burschka, Darius (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    In this paper, a new method for deformable 3D shape registration is proposed. The algorithm computes shape transitions based on local similarity transforms which allows to model not only as-rigid-as-possible deformations ...
  • Coarse-to-Fine Combinatorial Matching for Dense Isometric Shape Correspondence 

    Sahillioglu, Yusuf; Yemez, Yucel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    We present a dense correspondence method for isometric shapes, which is accurate yet computationally efficient. We minimize the isometric distortion directly in the 3D Euclidean space, i.e., in the domain where isometry ...
  • A Hierarchical Grid Based Framework for Fast Collision Detection 

    Fan, Wenshan; Wang, Bin; Paul, Jean-Claude; Sun, Jiaguang (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    We present a novel hierarchical grid based method for fast collision detection (CD) for deformable models on GPU architecture. A two-level grid is employed to accommodate the non-uniform distribution of practical scene ...
  • Optimising Perceived Distortion in Lossy Encoding of Dynamic Meshes 

    Vá a, L.; Petrík, O. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Development of geometry data compression techniques in the past years has been limited by the lack of a metric with proven correlation with human perception of mesh distortion. Many algorithms have been proposed, but usually ...
  • A Multiscale Metric for 3D Mesh Visual Quality Assessment 

    Lavoué, Guillaume (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Many processing operations are nowadays applied on 3D meshes like compression, watermarking, remeshing and so forth; these processes are mostly driven and/or evaluated using simple distortion measures like the Hausdorff ...

    Gregson, James; Sheffer, Alla; Zhang, Eugene (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)

    Dey, Tamal K.; Slatton, Andrew G. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Delaunay refinement, recognized as a versatile tool for meshing a variety of geometries, has the deficiency that it does not scale well with increasing mesh size. The bottleneck can be traced down to the memory usage of ...
